On this exciting day tour, we will set off from Krakow to explore the stunning Pieniny National Park and several medieval castles on the way.

Pieniny National Park is the oldest national park in the country, established in 1932, and it protects one of the most beautiful mountain ranges in Poland. You will be amazed by its spectacular limestone rock formations, awe-inspiring Dunajec river gorge, and rich diversity of countryside and flora.

But this is not all. In the national park's surroundings, there are also two medieval castles, that we will also have the chance to explore. Furthermore, during this hike, we will also climbTrzy Korony, one of the most spectacular viewpoint peaks in Pieniny. Additionally, we can extend the program by 1 day to visit Niedzica castle and enjoy Dunajec river rafting.

This program is open to everyone. However, although it is not technically demanding, it is not suitable for people with a fear of heights.

What people are saying about Pawel Wrobel

Declan Gallagher


February, 2023

This trip exceeded our expectations from start to finish. Pawel was a fantastic guide, very experienced and had an incredible knowledge of the geological features of the Gorce mountains and surrounding mountain ranges as well as the historical aspects of Polish history. As beginners to snowshoeing, Pawel was understanding and knowledgeable of the most suitable routes to take. In addition, at the beginning of the trip we presented Pawel with a problem which he resolved with empathy like a true gentleman. For that we were truly thankful. The whole trip was incredible. Memories created that we will never forget. Thank you so much!
